Gun-Control Group, PAC Pay $12K FEC Fine
The Associated Press is reporting that a gun-control group and its political action committee have paid a $12,000 fine to settle a campaign finance case from the 2000 election.
From the story:
- At issue were ads and endorsements by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and its Brady Voter Education Fund involving various Democratic candidates in 2000.
The American Conservative Union, in a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, accused the Brady organizations of making illegal corporate contributions to the Democrats' campaigns.
The FEC disclosed the outcome of the case Thursday.
The Brady Campaign is the latest name for Handgun Control Inc., and fronts other extremist gun ban organizations such as the "Million" Mom March.
